    Well, not much to go on...

    Hello and welcome to the forum. If you want some constructive advice, give us a bit more info about what you want to take photos of etc.

    If not, then buy the Olympus E620 (I have fallen out with Sony this week )

    I'd say the only thing I don't do a great lot of is portraits. So apart from that my photography is a fairly mixed bag.
    My current camera is a Fuji S100fs.
    Nice to see a Canon man recommending Olympus!! How have Sony been annoying you?

    It depends on what you are going to do, I have the Sony A700 and I really like it except for high ISO I wouldn't use it over ISO400. But most of what I do I stay with 100 anyway

    I upgraded my vaio laptop to Windows 7 and the graphics card, webcam, and microphone needed new drivers. Sony basically said they don't support windows 7 on my laptop! (its only 2 yrs old)

    Anyway, I sorted the issues out myself via google and the geekheads

    Hi Guys, finally made a decision, after weeks of trawling the net for reviews etc. Now the proud owner of a Sony A550 with twin lens'. Got a good deal & good service from Camera Warehouse.
